Call for Applications: 3rd Round of UK Aid Match II

Deadline: 13 December 2018

The UK Aid Match funding round is inviting applications from charities working to achieve sustained poverty reduction and to achieve the Global Goals.

It also encourages wildlife and conservation charities to apply for funds for projects that tackle wildlife crime and deforestation – and so reduce poverty in the world’s poorest communities.


Projects will also need to support the department’s wider objectives:

  • Strengthen global peace, security and governance
  • Strengthen resilience and response to crisis
  • Promote global prosperity
  • Tackle extreme poverty
